Sketchbook Assignment 12: Now that you’ve gotten used
to accurately capturing the human form, focus on interactions. At least two
sketches of two people interacting in each, one in motion, one at rest. Platonic
interactions only for this one, please.
“I wonder what happened to make him add that last
part,” you mused with a giggle, passing the paper to Bucky who snorted when he
“Oh, I think you know exactly what happened. Where do you want us, Steve?”
“Umm…” Steve looked up from his sketchbook absently,
scanning the room quickly and offering up a helpless shrug.
“Okay, well, that’s no help. Are we in motion or at
rest?” you asked.
“I vote at rest. I want to take a nap.”
“We won’t be interacting if you’re taking a nap,
“Sure we will. You can nap with me, or is Steve your
designated nap buddy?” There was a dangerous smirk on his face now, and Steve
cleared his throat in warning.
“In motion,” he said decisively. “How about a waltz,
Buck? Make your parents proud, and show off those dancing lessons.”
“Don’t even pretend you didn’t have to take those too,
punk,” Bucky grumbled, snatching your hand and pulling you into place. “You
“Dollface? My goodness, do I finally get to witness
that famous Bucky Barnes charm?” you teased as he led you into a basic waltz.
“I think you can handle it now. I didn’t want to turn
it on too early and overwhelm you.”
“That’s very kind of you,” you said with an amused
“I try,” he laughed, smiling back.
“Have you convinced that one girl to go out with you
yet? From your history class? Or have you moved on?” Steve questioned
pointedly, interrupting the harmless flirting that was churning his stomach.
“Uhhh, no, but thank you for so kindly bringing that
“Bucky Barnes is having lady troubles?” you gasped
mockingly, ignoring the glare he shot you.
“That’s what it sounds like to me. I thought you had
“I do have
game, thank you very much! I haven’t really been trying all that much.”
“Yeah, okay. Come on, then. Lay it on me.” You raised
your eyebrows at him in a silent challenge.
“Well, that plan backfired,” Steve whispered to
himself as his two best friends stared each other down.
“Are you sure you’re ready for this?”
“You’re stalling,” you said in a singsong voice.
“Fine,” Bucky said with a smirk, shifting his grip on
you to pull you slightly away from him and lead you into a series of quick
spins before yanking you back towards him, holding you tightly against his chest.
Still dizzy from the spinning, you reached up for his
shoulders to stabilize yourself.
“Wanna get out of here, doll?” Bucky whispered, his
lips brushing ever so slightly against your ear.
You shook your head with an incredulous laugh as Bucky
pulled away from you, resuming the casual waltz of a few moments ago.
“Alright, fine, you’ve got game,” you admitted, and
out of the corner of your eye you saw Steve shifting uncomfortably in his
chair. “You could never score with me, but you’ve got game.”
“Well, then it’s a good thing I wasn’t looking to score
with you,” Bucky laughed, sneaking a glance over at Steve. “Although I have to
ask why exactly that would be. You have your eye on someone?”
“Hah! Like I’d tell you if I did,” you scoffed.
“I’ll have you know I’m a very trustworthy person! Isn’t
that right Steve?”
“Absolutely not,” Steve mumbled absently, eyes fixed
determinedly on the sketch in front of him.
“You wound me.”
“Incidentally, you are not my type. Sorry, sweetheart,”
you said with an enigmatic smile.
“Oh, yeah? And what is your type exactly?” Bucky
asked, catching Steve’s eye over your shoulder and winking at him.
“Steve Buscemi,” you answered promptly, breaking into
a dazzling smile when you heard Steve let out a surprised laugh while Bucky
scrunched up his face in confusion and disgust.
“The real Steve Buscemi or the fake Steve Buscemi?”
Steve asked with a smile, looking up at you with eyes sparkling in amusement.
“Don’t ask questions you aren’t prepared to hear the
answers to,” you teased.
“What am I missing here? Guys? Why are you laughing?”
Who else hates statistics?! 🙋🏽
Studying for my test Thursday! Featuring my “This Week” pad that had a run in with coffee yesterday. I think that means I drink it too much!! (That won’t make me stop though) also, pop tarts for the win 🙊
Sitcom Thursday, featuring a little Parks and Rec. I know this quote has been recontextualized a lot before, but it really fits into my “Ben Wyatt would make a good Scott Summers” thing I don’t mention very often.
Sitcom Thursday, featuring a quote from Better Off Ted. (Guest-starring a quote from Bob’s Burgers.) Is it canon that Scott Summers has no ass? It feels canon. I suppose you can’t prove a negative, though.
No Q&A today. It’s been a kinda long, unexpectedly expensive week and I sorta need to decompress a bit.
Sitcom Thursday, featuring a quote from the Simpsons! I know I just did one, but I’ve been getting caught up on the Flash’s tv show and the fact that Joe West kinda adopted Barry in that canon made me immediately go here.
bryankonietzko and michaeldantedimartino gave an incredibly inspiring talk at our Thursday Think / EMERGE event today. The audience was filled with interns/assistants/coordinators/managers/artists from the studio and everyone walked away that much more excited to make the best cartoons around!!
when you text a guy after 3 years of radio silence because you saw his fashion label featured in Thursday Styles with the knowledge that you’re currently wearing a bootleg Always Sunny shirt covered in body soil
